A fantastic autumn and winter getaway, with an opportunity to learn some skills and get familiar with climbing during the British winter months. For those of you who want to get stuck into some activity in the winter and don't fancy joining Pure Outdoor in Scotland then this could be right up your street.
The Spanish coastline is home to lots of amazing limestone sport climbing, we find the Costa Blanca to be pleasantly quiet, accessible and great value. There is heaps of climbing at amenable grades for beginner and intermediate climbers - not to mention the jedi's.
The climbing in this area is predominantly 'sport climbing' which means that the routes have fixed protection bolted into the rock- similar to climbing/leading routes indoors. We can provide preparation courses in the Peak District for those starting completely from scratch.
